Fingers crossed that its a confirmed buy and doesn't kick back like my Cabelas powder order went.
Seems like it went through without it being a backorder.
Sure would be sweet for my new Tikka,
I'm using it for .300. 30.06 and 30-30 but think I can work something for the PA10 in 308 as well.
Managed to find 500 large pistol primers yesterday. Limit at one shop was 300...limit at another was 200. No small pistol primers to be found.
Also bought a box of Hornady .45cal 185gr HP/XTPs and a box of Sierra .375 cal. 200gr FN for my .375SuperMag.
Only had to spend about three hours and visit five different gun shops to find those few items.
I wanted to get some Hornady .45cal 230gr HP/XTPs, but nobody has them in stock locally.
Put a down payment on a custom shoulder holster and we talked about recent events that will not be discussed here.
Was told by Mark that he will have it completed in 13 to 15 weeks.
Good for him as I thought all of last years gun sales must have helped his business too!
Problem was matching the Tan color. Bought 3 buttstocks that didn't match. Desert Tan, Coyote Tan, plain old Tan.
Nothing got close, so I went with contrast instead.
Have since mounted a Nikon M223 on it.
Also scored 2 boxes federal LP Magnum match primers for $45 each at another LGS.
Ordered Desantis holster, Bianchi Speed Strips and Hoque Grips
Took it shooting yesterday, grabbed some .22 on my way out the door
Let us know how those work, I’ve been thinking about getting one for my Mk II and my Standard model pistols.
The accurizing kit wasn’t tough to do with the instructions on line and their you tube video. I did have to use the tiniest key from my good set of hex keys to undo the safety, the small one supplied with the kit stripped out and was useless. If you do try to tackle this upgrade you’ll probably need a vise to hold the frame, a few steps were not easy to do without one. The trigger pull is now short and crisp and about two pounds.
The extractor just replaced one part. I must say that the only issue was removing the factory extractor from the pistol bolts... MAN that was a pain in the rump!
